Oh boy, I have successfully avoided all CALs so far this year and now you go and post this one! I have baby things to make for a granddaughter due to be born in July! What are you doing to me! :eek I've never made a tote before, but Sue's beautiful tote's keep calling my name. They are just gorgeous! Oh, what to do?:think There is no deadline, right? :devil I'll see if I can decide on a pattern and if I have enough yarn in my stash! I need something easy to start! :hook

I'm joining! :D I have an idea for a tote, but I don't know what colors I'll be using yet. Probably just an extra skein that's taking up to much space! :P
